Why You Should Choose Concrete Steps and Stairways

Concrete can be used to add style and expression to any property. While it's mainly used as an exterior substance for building and designing, it is affordable for the average homeowner to use for both indoor and outdoor design. Steps, walkways, and staircases can all be constructed from concrete because concrete is a substance that conforms to any figure or structure. Practically any design can be constructed into a physical structure made of concrete, especially walkways and steps. Here are just a few reasons why you should choose concrete for your steps, stairways and walkways.

The durability of concrete, along with the very low maintenance required, make the choice of having concrete stairs over wood stairs an easy one. Concrete stairs will not warp, fade, splinter or rot. To keep a concrete stairway looking like new all you have to do is pressure wash and re-seal them. It also offers longevity compared to many other materials, and concrete is waterproof, so flood damage will not occur on contact. Finishes can be used to apply a variety of textures and sheens to further enhance their durability and resistance to the elements.


Concrete sidewalks, steps, and staircases can be decorated with colors and designs to match or complement any surroundings. You can color and stamp a concrete stairway to look like stone, brick, wood, or many other designs. Concrete steps with an exposed aggregate finish are a popular choice because of their attractive look and non-slip surface. A professional concrete company in Missouri can help homeowners achieve stunning visual effects by combining decorative concrete walkways and color-stained stairways and landings that coordinate colors and patterns.


Concrete steps benefit from the same versatility as other concrete applications. Plain and stamped concrete and exposed aggregate, for instance, are two of the many styles you can choose when envisioning your finished steps. The same applies to possible shapes: rounded stairs for a more individual look; straight stairs for short, functional styles curved or spiral for a classy flair; and layered for extended leveling are all possible forms your concrete steps can take.
